    San Marco Aspide with USE Alien post

    Anyone running an Aspide with the Xsilite rails, looks like ti to me but I'm no metallurgist, with a USE Alien post? Just bought three Aspide saddles and the bikes I plan on installing them on presently have Alien posts. I installed the first and it appeared the rails were beginning to bow a bit, this was before reaching torque spec, so I backed away to do a little research before proceding (or changing posts). Looking at a saddle new out of the box it appears the rails have a little bit of curvature so maybe I'm being overly cautious. I really like the Alien, has just about perfect setback for me and is plenty light, and I'm hoping the two are compatible. Thanks in advance.

    It is a sad day when you have to worry about compatibility issues between saddles and seat post. Though I remember when Brooks Saddles had non-standard rail widths so maybe we've been here before.

    I ran this combo for many miles, no problems.
